Excerpts from the interview:
On her show Wakaalat From Home
I play a dysfunctional lawyer, she is quirky, funny and the only sane person amongst all. But as the show moves forward her sanity fails. Wakaalat From Home is an out an out comedy show and there is absolutely no seriousness in the show. It was very exciting to be part of the show and it was great that I was working during the lockdown. In fact, everyone invested their time in each other, and nobody had tantrums. All of us were cooperative and accommodating.
Did you want you to be a lawyer?
No, I wanted to be a journalist actually. But I'm glad I'm not one (Laughs)
On being vocal on Twitter
I have voiced my opinion on Twitter enough so I don't find the need to again validate the thing via an interview. Primarily because enough of said we need to realise that we are human beings and not animals in a circus so let's stop behaving like that.
Are you content with work?
You need to be happy and content each day. In case, you are having a bad day or a bad phase, you have an oppournity to make it better and that's what's important
When can we see you and your brother Danish together?
I find him effortlessly funny; he doesn't think before he speaks so that helps. Not that I can think that we both can be in the same frame, However, we haven't been offered anything yet.
Working with Sumeet Vyas
Sumi and I have done 6 projects together so he better act like a best friend. He is a thinker and a powerhouse of talent.
